Based on the concept of “Independence and Autonomy,” which is at the core of Nissui’s human resources system, we provide human resources development measures to support each employee in drawing up and realizing his or her career plan.
Since 2017, Nissui has been cooperating with the Mirai (Future) Class offered by the NPO, Oyaji Nippon (Note). Mirai Class offers classes on “Career Education,” in which speakers lecture on what it means to work and the goals of working from the perspective of a corporate person, at the elementary and junior high schools in Tokyo. Each employee talks about Nissui’s unique operations and what he/she has learned from his/her experiences. By communicating those stories in his/her own words to the children, each employee is helping the children to mentally prepare to become working persons in the future.
(Note) NPO Oyaji Nippon: An organization that supports the Oyaji-no-kai (middle-aged/elderly men’s associations) around the country and carries out activities that contribute to the sound growth of children.
Nissui holds take-your-children-to work-days so that children can get to know their parents’ workplace and to instill in them an awareness of the importance of the sea.
At the first Take Your Children to Work Day, held on July 26, 2019, at Nissui’s Head Office, children deepened their understanding of Nissui by first receiving an explanation on the businesses of the Nissui Group from the President, visiting the workplace, and getting job experience, including exchanging business cards and photo-copying documents. Additionally, through the workshop on the theme of marine pollution by Japan GEMS Center, the children thought about the importance and the difficulties of protecting the marine environment. The parents also participated in the workshop.
Comments by the employees’ children include “I was glad I was able to visit the company” and “I will try not to pollute the ocean.” The activities promoted exchanges among the employees and increased the awareness toward the environment,as evidenced by the employees comments, including “I was able to have an exchange with other departments” and “It made me think about the environment in a new light.”
